Guadalupe River Park Conservancy’s goal is to maintain the cleanest and safest place to play in the South Bay. As Conservancy employees, Rotary PlayGarden Attendants play a key role in that effort, greeting guests at the gate, enforcing park rules, and performing daily maintenance tasks. While paid attendants were an unanticipated cost, they have proven essential in pursuit of this goal, as evidenced by testimonials from guests:“My kids love this place! I do too. It's very clean, it's safe and the equipment is fun. I love that there is only one way in and out of the park. It's so much easier to see where your kids are and let them play freely.”“It's such a perfect safe place to bring your lil ones! I love how it's gated and there is always someone watching over the area. My son loves coming here!”
Did you know that the Rotary PlayGarden almost didn’t get built?
When the Rotary Club of San Jose’s proposal went to the San Jose City Council in 2010, the City had already adopted a moratorium on building new parks - unless there was a privately-funded maintenance plan.
Rotary didn’t have the means to maintain it after raising $6M for construction, but, with Guadalupe River Park Conservancy's commitment to operate and maintain the park, the project to build San Jose’s first all-inclusive playground moved forward.
